Thresholds of the Future...Highlights

A community of Grace will be ....

a community where cultural values are scrutinised in the light of Kingdom values;
a community of generosity and sharing of friendship and belonging, of mission and identity, of freedom and risk taking.
a community of that can not but help stand out against the deeply held values of Western culture;
a community of passion where suffering is accepted and given grounding and meaning through the cross;
a community where fullness of life is both affirmed and celebrated;
a community of partnership where the dignity of all and their right to participate is upheld – a group of all leaders;
a community of where the effective power will be love.
